3830 Reflector Comments:

I didn't arrive to Lloyd's station until the first 26 hours of the contest had
elapsed. I've now been reading reports on 3830 that conditions were "fantastic"
during the first day, prior to the occurrence of the solar flares. I had been
thinking that the conditions I was experiencing were just normal for the
weekend. I had absolutely no idea that everyone else was experiencing a big
slowdown. I just wasn't around!

Got off to a great start at 0200z Sunday with big pileups on 15m. Took a break
for "happy hour" (sashimi and beer) at 0400z. Afterwards, I enjoyed my best
hour on 20m, with 130 Qs between 0621-0721z. Then, I abruptly put an end to
that fun with another one hour break for supper. Obviously, this was not meant
to be a serious effort!

Only 100 contacts were made during the final 7 hours glued to the chair, with
only about a dozen on 15m and finally, with just 10 minutes to go, got JE1CKA
on 10m for my one and only 5-bander!

Number of unique stations: 718

Median age of operators (not of QSOs): 58

The last time I operated seriously in All Asian was about 35 years ago, as a
teenager, operating Dave Rowley's station, N6RZ (SK).

73 & aloha...
